Python bindings to the OpenStack Keystone API

This is a client for the OpenStack Keystone API. There's a Python API (the keystoneclient module), and a command-line script (keystone). The Keystone 2.0 API is still a moving target, so this module will remain in "Beta" status until the API is finalized and fully implemented.

Development takes place on GitHub. Bug reports and patches may be filed there.

This code a fork of Rackspace's python-novaclient which is in turn a fork of Jacobian's python-cloudservers. The python-keystoneclient is licensed under the Apache License like the rest of OpenStack.

Python API

By way of a quick-start:

# use v2.0 auth with")
>>> from keystoneclient.v2_0 import client
>>> keystone = client.Client(username=USERNAME, password=PASSWORD, tenant_name=TENANT, auth_url=KEYSTONE_URL)
>>> keystone.tenants.list()
>>> tenant = keystone.tenants.create(name="test", descrption="My new tenant!", enabled=True)
>>> tenant.delete()

Command-line API



The CLI is not yet implemented, but will follow the pattern laid out below.

Installing this package gets you a shell command, keystone, that you can use to interact with Keystone's API.

You'll need to provide your OpenStack username and API key. You can do this with the --username, --apikey and --projectid params, but it's easier to just set them as environment variables:

export OS_TENANT_NAME=project
export OS_USERNAME=user
export OS_PASSWORD=pass

You will also need to define the authentication url with --url and the version of the API with --version. Or set them as an environment variables as well:

export OS_AUTH_URL=

Since Keystone can return multiple regions in the Service Catalog, you can specify the one you want with --region_name (or export KEYSTONE_REGION_NAME). It defaults to the first in the list returned.

You'll find complete documentation on the shell by running keystone help:

usage: keystone [--username user] [--password password]
                [--tenant_name tenant] [--auth_url URL]
               <subcommand> ...

Command-line interface to the OpenStack Keystone API.

Positional arguments:
    add-fixed-ip        Add a new fixed IP address to a servers network.

Optional arguments:
  --username USER            Defaults to env[OS_USERNAME].
  --password PASSWORD        Defaults to env[OS_PASSWORD].
  --tenant_name TENANT_NAME  Defaults to env[OS_TENANT_NAME].
  --tenant_id TENANT_ID      Defaults to env[OS_TENANT_ID].
  --url AUTH_URL             Defaults to env[OS_AUTH_URL] or
  --version VERSION          Defaults to env[KEYSTONE_VERSION] or 2.0.
  --region_name NAME         The region name in the Keystone Service
                             Catalog to use after authentication.
                             Defaults to env[KEYSTONE_REGION_NAME] or the
                             first item in the list returned.

See "keystone help COMMAND" for help on a specific command.
